DIY: Mini Laptop Desk

DIY + How To

Who needs huge desks with tons of space and room for clutter to stack up? Nobody this side of 1999, that’s who. Seriously, with all this sleek technology floating around, you just don’t need a huge piece of furniture taking up any precious living space. Dean Heckler knows that all too well; he’s the inventor of one of our favorite pieces of furniture, the One Less Desk. (You can listen/read our interview with him here: Exclusive Interview: Dean Heckler). If you don’t have the funds for a One Less Desk right now but do have an immediate need for a laptop desk that fits just your laptop, we suggest this fun DIY project from Fresh Home Ideas. Look, you’ll need to know how to cut wood and operate power tools and put stuff together, but there are full color instructions and diagrams and photos; give it a shot! More here.

        My daughter really likes this desk and would like me to build one for her. Do you know where I could get a copy of the instructions? The link provided is broken.

        Unfortunately, the site appears to have closed since the post was made, so we can’t help with the instructions–sorry!
